What a blessed day the 9th of June turned out to be!!
We started the day off with a get-together at the Comrades Expo for our annual customary Team Photo. there was such an intimate vibe between friends that only our Lord could have created. The photo done we moved to the Expo hall and then the S4J support team went scouting for the best support spots.
The day started off dreary and misty but this did not last long. Team at Camperdown soon got into the Comrades spirit! We set up and waited and soon the action started…
From then on it was just lots and lots of athletes. In between the support of our S4J athletes we also managed to have some fun
We saw some very dedicated S4J athletes going by as well.
And at around 2:30pm it started petering out until the last person had come past. It was an exhausting day but so rewarding for us at S4J. Thank you to every athlete that had made our work throughout the year so worth while.
Here is wonderfully inspiring story of one of our athletes you should enjoy
I was told on the 12th of March 2018 that I will probably never run long distances again and that I needed urgent surgery to repair a torn labrum in my hip and other inherited defects. I was in absolute agony and really battled to walk and could not go up or down stairs. I used to wake up at night from pain and limped while walking.
I decided to not go for the surgery and rather cycle while going for physical therapy and then in June 2018 I started taking Osteo eze platinum daily. The improvement was gradual but by November 2018 I could run a marathon again and haven’t looked back since then. This year I completed the 2 oceans and will be taking part in comrades too. It has made a tremendous difference in my quality of life as I love running and also to my mobility in my hip (and pain).
The product I use contains a novel new ingredient that is extracted from chicken sternum cartilage and works with your immune system to facilitate healing. Running causes micro damage to the cartilage and although some of the popular joint supplements work in reducing pain and inflammation, it does not address the root cause of the problem. A key component in joint destruction is when the immune system goes out of control and starts attaching the cartilage. This is why I now use my two pronged approach – Osteo eze platinum daily for cartilage protection and osteo eze MSM for the inflammation and exercise recovery.
These two together address not only pain and excess inflammation but also triggers the natural rebuild of your cartilage. This is even a great prevention strategy for people without issues. A study done in healthy individuals showed faster recovery from exercise and an increase in joint mobility.
We hope you enjoyed this advise which perhaps would be useful to you.
